Invented in France in 1842 by Peugeot, the pepper grinder provided a quicker an easier way to crack peppercorns, and soon became a must have for most households. Silver pepper grinders started to be produced soon after, however examples from before 1880 are rare, with the majority available today from the end of the 19th and the 20th Centuries. The best grinding mechanisms were still manufactured by Peugeot at this time, and these tend to be found in the finest silver examples.
